My Approach to Helping
It can feel vulnerable to reach out for support and help. It takes courage to take this step. You'll find a safe, approachable, knowledgeable, healing environment to gain the skills and support you need. My style is one of equipping and getting to the core root of the issue that has brought you to this point in your life with efficacy so that you can get back to the joy of living your life with purpose and confidence. In addition to being a Christian counselor, I also have the added experience of 20+ years of ministry experience in a variety of settings seeing individuals set free from life controlling struggles and couples more connected than they ever imagined.
More Info About My Practice
I specialize in men's issues and counsel individuals who are struggling with anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, abandonment issues and aloneness. I also help men overcome and find freedom from life controlling behaviors such as compulsive pornography use. Often times men feel defeated and can see the effect this is having on their marriage and their own life, but feel powerless to stop. I will help you find and bring healing to the core root of the issue as well as practical steps and tools to decrease compulsive behaviors.
One further area of specialty is men who have suffered from fatherhood abandonment issues. There are certain characteristics of men who've experienced this kind of wound and specialized care to help heal these wounds. You don't have to settle for a life of fear and despair. You were created to experience life abundant and to thrive. You will be encouraged to experience God's presence more fully by integrating the promises and power of Christ into your daily life. Transformation is possible by the powerful love of Christ through competent and skillful Christian counseling.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I enjoy helping pre-marital couples and married couples in the areas of communication, forgiveness and having a relational non-anxious presence. I have witnessed couples go from what they thought was the end of their marital journey into new paths of life and intimacy and look forward to seeing that same path becoming yours. Couples often feel alone in their struggles. The work of counseling can help each couple realize they are far from alone and closer to healing than they might assume.
I also specialize in working with individuals and couples who work in the vocation of ministry or church ministry specifically. I not only understand the demands, dynamics, and needs of those in ministry but can skillfully help you connect the dots to find healthier ways to function in your roles to prevent burnout and restore the passion you once had for your vocational calling.
